There is an unofficial RPM version available, but when the magic 1.0 is
reached, an RPM version should be available from the main scribus site.

Install the font as you would normally and restart Scribus - it should
be available then.

Import supports tiff, jpg, gif [1], SVG. Once they are loaded into the
document, they are available for saving as PDF, printing and standalone

[1] this assumes that you have libjpeg, libtiff and libgif available for
Scribus to use.



The world is throwing away oppressive regimes
Which don't allow people to choose.
Wars are fought to topple these people.
Yet the folks who do this, still use Windows.
Double standards or not understanding why they did it?
